This week team CH have been thinking about their special place. We thought about things that are special to us, why they are special and what we do in our special place.
This week in maths we have been partitioning a whole group into two and even three parts using bar models.
Following all the hard work children have put in to writing their sentences Team CH took the time to present their work to the audience they had written it for. The children worked hard on developing their oracy skills, including reading with clear expression and intonation. We worked hard to practise our performance so that it was delivered as confidently as possible.
This week Team CH have introduced learners to the freehand tools available for digital painting. We have used key vocabulary such as, paint program, tool, paintbrush, erase, fill and undo.
This week Team CH have been celebrating the life of Rosa Parks. We have recognised Rosa Parks as a significant person of history and revisited her story and how she helped change the life’s of so many and the rules.
Prior to introducing Rosa Parks, we introduced the story 'Tusk Tusk' Written by David McKee - Once elephants came in two colours: black or white. They loved all other creatures - but each set wanted to exterminate the elephants that were not the same as themselves. Peace-loving individuals ran and hid in the deepest jungle, and battle commenced. The war-mongers all succeeded. For a long time, it seemed that there were no elephants in the world at all, not of any colour. But then the descendants of the peace-loving ones emerged from the jungle, and by now they were all grey.
This lead us nicely into a conversation about equality. Next, we introduced Rosa Parks and spend time talking about who Rosa Parks was, why she is a significant person and the changes that happened thanks to people like her.
Finally, children wrote down some information about Rosa Parks and discussed our key vocabulary: equal, Justice, segregation and significant.
This week Team CH have reviewed all tehir knowlegde about the United Kingdom at length in an oracy focussed lesson. Additionally, we all further developed our writing skills as we comepleted a few question to consolidate some key information.
This week Team CH have thought about how feelings ca affect our bodies and how feelings can change our behaviour. We know that talking about our feeling can make us feel better.
Today Team CH have been working in pairs. Partner A was red and partner B was blue. Next, two numbers were shown on the board and children had the task of representing their number using counters. After this, we spent time talking about our total number of counters and comparing them with our partners.
In this session, the class began a new unit of writing based on our text driver The tiger who came to tea. This was shared with the class as part of an exciting hook. The highway Rat paid a visit to our class room and had taken our fruit! After sharing the text, the audience and purpose for writing was established. Children were clear that the focus for this unit of writing would be to be able to Form lower case correctly in the correct direction, starting and finishing in the right place and being able to add the suffix ‘ing’ to a root word where no change to the spelling is required. During this lesson, the focus of learning was centred on using inference skills to suggest what is happening or may happen within the story.
This week in Spanish we have added to our ever-growing vocabulary and introduced appropriate responses to the question how are you feeling. Below are a few phrases that we are continuously working on.

¡Buenos días! = Good morning!
¡Hola! = Hi!
Me llamo… = My name is…
